Summary: it is beautiful and very light. Just like reviewed by other customers, the shortcoming include the touch keyboard makes noises and the sound effect is not good enough. But its price still makes a good bargain for a student.
Summary: Amazing product. Better than mac book in some aspects like PRICE, hdmi port(mac book has mini port which needs seperate adapter). Go for macbook only if you love apple or want a metallic body.
Pros: I bought the laptop refurbished. It arrived in good order. The package was generic with the laptop and the power cord inside. The laptop looked like it could have been secured a little better in the box but the laptop arrived in good shape. The laptop is the size, weight, display quality I was expecting. The SSD and the i7 make it fast. Very pleased with the performance. I had an Acer 13.3" laptop for the prior 2.5 years.
Cons: The battery life is disappointing. I have been through two full discharge cycles and on the third. The battery life is trending to about 2.5 hours, far less than the 'upto 6'. I can live with buying a new battery but was hoping the refurb would do a littler better.
Summary: I've had this computer for a little over a month and so far so good. I feel like the SSD really helps. It seems to be handling the running of quite a few programs at once better than my previous computers. Photoshop used to cause malfunctions, but so far it hasn't been a problem. I'm not fancy, so I can't say anything about upgrading memory, but what it comes with works for my uses, which are just school and personal.
Summary: I bought this to replace my bulky and heavy Dell (older) laptop that I take to work. That laptop used to be the the top of the line ($1800) laptop and was constantly concerned that it would be taken or broken so I bought this one since it was fairly cheap (<$400) and it would take up less space. I am just a casual computer user so the specs don't really concern me but I can say it is a fast and lightweight ultrabook. I use it mainly for web surfing and school work.
Good value for price. Reliable with a few minor annoyances.

Summary: This is a great computer. I have had it for over two months now and I carry it to school with me everyday. I feel like I got the quality that I paid for. Pros: It is quite light. I don't feel exhausted from carrying it around school everyday. Works reliably. The only technical issues I ever have is because of constant windows 8 upgrades. I have had very few issues with this computer.
Summary: It's been a week and so far I am loving it. I have a mac book pro but wanted a PC that was close to the size of the Mac Air. No cons yet. This PC is very sleek and in my opinion, it looks much nicer than the Air (Champagne color is absolutely gorgeous). I love the lightweight, keyboard, screen, speakers and the fact its Windows 7 with i5. Very happy with the purchase and I did recommend this ultrabook to my friend, and he will be ordering one soon as well.
